American Jewish Congress President Jack Rosen and Vice President Dr. Munr Kazmir issued the following statement:
"The American Jewish Congress condemns the horrific terrorist attack that took the lives of 75 people and injured more than 200 people at the 800-year-old shrine of Qalandar Lal Shahbaz in Sehwan Pakistan. Thousands were gathered with their families, including their children, to joyfully celebrate the ritual of sufi dance, ‘Dhamal’, when a suicide bomber entered the shrine and blew himself up. Hospitals are in state of emergency, as rescue efforts endure to assist the wounded. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of all those murdered and injured in this attack."
